    LegalEagle48 has it right: in American English, one syllable for ‘poem’ is valid (if not always preferred, according to Merriam-Webster Collegiate 10th ed.), and haiku would be two syllables.

    I wonder if the pronunciation of poem is one of those distinctive regional variations….

    I do all of that today with recent innovations: Amazon offers hardcovers, accepts payment with gift cards, and delivers to a local Amazon Locker. Thought-provoking, lasting, and anonymous. Non-trivial to do, though. Dad is averse to something more specific than “the future”.

    According to the University of Wisconsin meteorite page, ‘all but the largest meteors’ slow down to 100-200 mph (the terminal velocity of the rock) and ‘go dark’ as they pass through the atmosphere. A fast pitch is about 100 mph, so if the rock is small enough, the catcher’s mitt would work (except that a cold rock falling at 100 mph out of the night sky would be impossible to see…it would have to hit his mitt purely by chance).

    That’s Pascal… why is that language even in his head?

    Arguably one of the most achievable ambitions he’s ever voiced.

    hmph…‘reply’ doesn’t work for me.
    @Strod
    120 pages per Cliffs Notes seems reasonable as an upper bound.
    @Scyphi
    I figured a regular, generic high school English class.

    That’d be Cliffs Notes from about 10 novels… is a novel a month reasonable? I don’t remember reading assignments in English being quite so vigorous.
